Week 8 is Wellbeing Week at St Clare’s and students have the week off from written homework.
As a parent you know that your child’s success at school is linked to their wellbeing.
Wellbeing and learning go hand in hand. When your child feels connected to their family, peers and teachers they feel secure in the knowledge that they will be supported throughout their learning journey. Safe and trusting relationships create a positive learning environment where wellbeing can flourish. The Australian Student Wellbeing Framework supports you to work with the school to promote your child’s wellbeing and learning.
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
During Wellbeing week, staff and students are having a focus on performing random acts of kindness to each other. Everyone is thinking of creative ways to show kindness to another person unexpectedly.
A random act of kindness is an unexpected act of charity or helpfulness and is often done for a stranger. The term refers to selfless acts, both large and small, that are committed unexpectedly, without prompting and with no apparent ulterior motive. Examples might include paying for a coffee for the person in line behind you at the coffee shop, helping a person cross the street, or offering to help soothe a crying baby while the parents finish shopping. People generally use the term to refer to acts performed for strangers, but random acts of kindness can also be done for friends and family.
